Crusty Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Made these last night for a dinner party at which one of our guests was a chef friend who is known for her exceptional bread. She asked me to bring some for Thanksgiving dinner! I think that's a solid vote of confidence. I did make two small changes: butter instead of shortening; bread flour instead of AP. The rolls came out light and fluffy on the inside with a great golden crust. Awesome recipe. Thanks!

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
In a word, wow! Moist, tender, and lightly sweet, with delightful notes of apple and cinnamon. I subbed sucralose (Splenda) for 1/3 of the sugar in the muffins themselves. I will definitely make these again.

Pakistani Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Excellent flavors -- aromatic, spicy, but (as written) mild enough even for less adventurous diners -- well balanced. Like most traditional recipes, this one can be adjusted to the palettes of those you'll be serving. I do plan to increase the cayenne next time, but still found it delicious. My fiance, who is not picky but doesn't normally eat much, cleaned his plate. I made only two small changes: first, I used whole rather than ground coriander -- I think I used about two teaspoons worth -- since I had no ground coriander and didn't feel like taking time to grind it. Second, I threw in a can of chick peas, drained, and cooked them with the lentils: not a necessary addition, but they went beautifully with the lentils and spices. For accompaniment, I steamed about 1/4 of a smallish green cabbage, cut into four chunks, on top of the lentils for the last 6 or 8 minutes. I served the curry with rice, home-made flatbreads, and a modified tzaziki sauce. In short, Jerry Javed's Pakistani Lentil Curry is guaranteed to become a part of my regularly recipe rotation. One more caveat -- households of two, such as mine, may want to halve the recipe. It makes a lot! That said, I'm looking forward to lentil curry for breakfast tomorrow morning!

Hearty Skillet Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
I loved the mixture of basic ingredients and the easy of preparation, but Denis and I weren't particularly keen on the sauce. However, the recipe in question does make a perfectly good starting point for stew-related experimentation.

Acorn Squash Slices

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
A simple yet tasty preparation for acorn squash. I sprinkled mine with pumpkin pie spice. I thought the maple flavor could have been a little stronger, but that may have been due to the fact that I used a maple syrup blend instead of straight maple syrup.

Mexican Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
A delightful side or, in larger portions, main dish. I never remember to pick up jalapenos, so I season to taste with pepper flakes or ground red pepper -- it works just fine. I've made this two different ways: the firs time, I julienned the zucchini by hand. The second time, I shredded it with a grater. Texturally, I preferred the julienned version, but both were very, very good.

Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
Excellent -- quick and easy, with lovely banana flavor. I didn't have a loaf pan handy (just moved), so I portioned the batter into some round-bottomed muffin cups. It turned out perfectly -- delightful little banana bread balls, each ideally sized to toss back for breakfast.

Apple-Oat Breakfast Treats

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
I'm not good at cookies, so I was delighted to find that these were quick, easy, and came out just as I was hoping: a little closer to the 'chewy granola bar' end of the spectrum than the 'oatmeal cookie' end. I found that in my oven, they wanted a good twenty minutes -- but it needs a new baking temperature knob and our oven thermometer is iffy, so I may have been baking them below the recommended temperature. I did not experience any issues with dryness or sticking. I added dried cranberries to half the batch, and with or without them, the finished product does work really nicely for a dash-out-the-door breakfast, which is exactly why I made them. However, in the future, I think I'll forego the pie filling in favor of dried apple pieces, which will make them a bit more portable by bike.
